The Bay Retreat Villas are ok, nice size, living area could be a little bigger if there were 3 or 4 of you ( Family ). The best part was that you get ( well I did ) a £50 Gift card to use in any Rick Steins establishment, very nice. The not so good part, certain things in the...

On arrival there was no reception. We eventually discovered that the keys were kept in a lock up box outside one of the villas and finally got inside our accommodation. Pet friendly? Bet your life it is, smelled of damp animal! Attention then turned to the kitchen. Everything had to be scrubbed before use and the oven was filthy. Zero...

Booked through discounted offer and were concerned on arrival at the lack of a reception and being unable to contact anyone by phone. We followed the instructions to find the key and property number and once inside the property everything was good. We had a problem with the fridge door but that was quickly fixed following telephone call. Location is...

I have stayed in the Bay Retreat villas a few times over the last two years with various members of my family. The villas are modern, comfortable and have everything you need for a happy holiday. Bedding and towels were provided on each visit and the kitchen is extremely well equipped with a fridge, freezer, oven, hob, large dishwasher, microwave...

We stayed here over Christmas 2016. Key access was slightly unconventional, but without problems. This contemporary development was well laid out around a central green area. Good parking. Spotlessly clean throughout. Kitchen utensils were limited and not the best - but hey, we were on holiday and not there to spend time in the kitchen! Very warm. Plenty of storage...

Lovely accommodation very clean & modern, however poor customer service & organisation lets them down, we arrived late after a long journey via the M5 carpark tried to call office to let them know we would be late but just got voicemails. When we arrived we followed the instructions used for the key code safe but no keys were left,...

Thank you for your review and we are delighted you found the accommodation to your satisfaction, although rather concerned to hear of the problems you encountered. Please accept our apologies that you had a short delay in obtaining the keys to your villa. I have been in contact with Wendy to discuss the absence of the keys in the keysafe...

Booked a dog friendly villa via a third party website offer, as a winter break. The booking offer was excellent for a three night stay, inclusive of a gift card to use at Rick Stein's. The villas are situated at the back of a residential/holiday park in St Merryn and easily found via the postcode. Instructions for access were equally...

We, my family and I stayed there for a week, the worst time ever! We stayed in July 2016, it was to celebrate my eldest daughters birthday as well as a holiday. We were taken to a villa in a building site and around a building site, villas were built very close to each other. Not to mention close to...

Bay Retreat Villas are not on a building site. All these properties were completed in Autumn 2008. There was some building work by the main entrance to the park yet far enough away that any noise would have been minimal. All gardens are private and screened by fencing. 2 extra dining chairs were in the stair cupboard. The bed was...

Having booked this on an offer we were a little apprehensive as to what we would find. However we were very pleasantly surprised, the house was nice, modern, good size for the 3 of us, it was clean, had all the mod cons: washing machine, dishwasher, iron, TV & DVD. The local shop was very well stocked, our daughter loved...
